Rust from the Antarctic - a record of pollutants in wilderness environments / V. Otieno-Alego, G. King, J. Hughes, R. Gillett.

Title: Rust from the Antarctic - a record of pollutants in wilderness environments / V. Otieno-Alego, G. King, J. Hughes, R. Gillett.
Author(s): Otieno-Alego, V.

Date: 2000.
Publisher: Auckland, NZ: Australasian Corrosion Association Inc
Abstract: Reports initial data from study aimed at generating micro-climate and corrosivity map for coastal regions of Antarctica. Uses X-ray fluorescence and inductive coupled plasma-mass spectroscopy to analyse sulphur and chloride contents of corrosion products formed on standard low-alloy copper-bearing steel after exposure at sub-Antarctic Macquarie Island and Heard Island, and Rothera, Mawson and Davis stations in Antarctica. Compares results with similar tests in coastal Australia. Sulphate and chloride contents of rust from Antarctic sites were nearly three times those at sub-Antarctic islands, demonstrating unperceived high corrosion regime at coastal sites in Antarctica.
